Description

Help treat a wide variety of parasitic diseases quickly, and effectively, with API's General Cure Parasitic Fish Disease Treatment. Parasitic diseases like anchor worm, fish lice, hole-in-the-head and gill worms are caused by dirty aquarium conditions and when infected fish are added to the environment. If left untreated, parasites can not only cause infection, tissue damage and lead to fish loss, but they can also be passed to other fish, putting the entire underwater community at risk. This treatment contains sodium chloride to eliminate parasites, usually within 48 hours. So, give your finned friend the protection they need with API!

API GENERAL CURE is safe to use around aquatic turtles, but is only intended to treat disease in fish.

Will API GENERAL CURE disrupt the biological filter in my freshwater aquarium?

For best results from medication, remove your filtration media as you dose.

Clearing the Water

API offers reliable three-step filtration for tanks of all sizes with their FILSTAR XP Canister filters and wide variety of filter media. These powerful filters constantly circulate the water, trapping organic waste and odors, removing harmful ammonia and contaminants, and helping good bacteria to thrive in the tank.

Feeding your aquarium inhabitants, whether they're tropical fish, turtles or newts, is something that can be tricky without the right food. API developed a special diet for every type of fish—one that's highly palatable, which leads to less waste in the tank. And that means less ammonia to cloud the water.

    Does Not Work For Internal Parasites

    By on

    I see that it works on hole in the head disease, but does no work to internal parasites or wasting away disease. Used this product correctly for weeks and saw no improvement in my fish's health. I'll stick to PraziPro for internal parasites.

    Did not work for me

    By on

    This product did not work for me, but I feel like this a is a tough product to review. I was almost certain my fish had a tape worm or some sort of internal parasite and after following treatment instructions on package my fish is doing no better (actually seems to be worse). But that's not to say my assumption was right so I could have been treating for something that was not the problem. Maybe in the future I can try this product again if more issues arise and see if it will help then.

    Delivered fast!

    By on

    I ordered API General Cure because my Boesemani Rainbow developed hole in the head. I couldn't find it in any of my local pet stores and was worried about ordering online due to time constraints. I was promised delivery by Wednesday which seemed reasonable to me. As it turned out, I got it a day earlier than the promise date which really made me happy. My Boesemani boy is better and I am very happy for that.

    The first thing I should have purchased !

    By on

    First of all I paid $18 at the local store . After unsuccessful treatment with blue ink for ick I worried if this is the right medicine, I was afraid to harm my discus even further . But!!!! It worked!!! I kept my sick fish in 5 gallon tank to reduce wasting of the product in 48 hours fish was ready to be back to 55 gallon tank ! I am attaching pictures before and after and it is hard to believe this is the same fish!!! Next time will buy from Chewy to safe money !!!

    I've been using this for two weeks now, trying to get rid of a parasite , with no success. Just like the other two API products that I have been using for the parasite for about two months.
